TCP ex Machina: Computer-Generated Congestion Control

Keith Winstein and Hari Balakrishnan (via Slashdot):

Remy is a computer program that figures out how computers can best cooperate to share a network.

Remy creates end-to-end congestion-control algorithms that plug into the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). These computer-generated algorithms can achieve higher performance and greater fairness than the most sophisticated human-designed schemes.

An early version of their paper is available, as is the code.
